Food Pantry at the back of the church is open to EVERYONE on
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8am until 6pm
This Pantry is kindly supported by the parishioners of St Bonaventure’s Church and the residents of Egerton Road and the surrounding community.


One of our longtime volunteers, Kerry, has raised an incredible £450 for the pantry by running the Bristol Half Marathon last week. She told us about her experience:

“It was all very last minute – a friend dropped out and I stepped in, having not trained to run 13 miles! But I decided to use this as a fundraising opportunity and it was really easy to set up a page on Just Giving to accept sponsorship on behalf of the Community Food Pantry. I finished in just 2 hours and 18 minutes, and raised around £450. I’m very pleased – and very pleased it’s over!”

Well done Kerry!

We are always looking for ways to raise money to keep the pantry stocked. Could you help us, perhaps by holding a bring-and-buy sale, or a sponsored silence or even running a whole marathon on our behalf? We’d love to see what you can do!


Please donate:

PLASTIC BAGS for people to take the food home in


Tinned fish

UHT milk

Pasta sauces or passata





Dried lentils


Washing up liquid


Please DO NOT donate:

Fresh food (we can’t safely store it and it will go to waste)


Where do I leave food donations?

Please put food donations either in the clear box labelled “Community Food Pantry Donation Box” at the back of the church or in the box outside the front door of the Presbytery.

How do I donate money?

There is a “Food Pantry” button on the Donation Point inside the church if you would like to make monetary donations by card. Or you can give cash to Mgr Massey or put it in an envelope through Jenny Glester’s door at 57 Egerton Road.

Thank you all for your support!
